Bishopsbourne lies 3 miles south-east of Canterbury and whilst a relatively small village, has a long and important history. It was on ‘Barham Downs’, the area north of the village, that many armies camped, from the Romans – the Britons were said to have been defeated by Caesar here in 54 BC – to the British Army at the time of the Napoleonic Wars.
During the Napoleonic Wars, the church of St John the Baptist was often used for the baptisms and marriages of soldiers encamped on the Downs.
‘Canterbury’s past is as rich as it comes’ says the latest Lonely Planet guide to Britain. This world-famous cathedral city was one of medieval Europe’s great places of pilgrimages and knowledge. Today – with its international visitors and four universities – it still has a distinctly cosmopolitan feel. Less than an hour from London and a 10 minute drive from Mulberry House, it’s in that corner of England that’s almost touching France.
A fantastic day out can be had from visiting historic sites, fab activities like punting together with an excellent array of shops, bars and restaurants. Take a look at the Visit Canterbury site to fully appreciate what this wonderful city has to offer.
Beaches and coastal towns close by.
Whitstable is like no other town by the sea. Its traditional charms, strong arts culture and rich maritime history complement Whitstable’s modern appeal.
Whitstable’s main claim to fame is its oysters which remain an intrinsic part of this sea town’s character and are celebrated every July at the Oyster Festival. Oysters and other delicacies from the sea can be enjoyed at the local restaurants and pubs or taken home from the fresh fish market at the harbour.
There are great little independently owned boutiques and antique/2nd hand shops with a bohemian feel.
There are 14.5 miles of coastline stretching from Seasalter to Reculver which attracts a large number of visitors and water sports enthusiasts. Take a look at Visit Canterbury for a more detailed overview of this wonderful coastline.
